With the Red Sox going up against Yankees left-hander CC Sabathia, Allen Craig will get the start in right field in the series opener Friday night. Daniel Nava is hitting exclusively from the left side this year, and the other option would be left-handed hitting Brock Holt, so manager John Farrell is going with the righty in Craig with Shane Victorino on the DL. Otherwise it's a standard lineup for the Red Sox with Mike Napoli fully recovered from his illness and starting at first base.
